Environmental tips
• In the dryer, laundry becomes fluffy and
soft. Fabric softeners are not therefore
needed when washing.
• Your dryer will function most
economically if you:
– Always keep the ventilation slots on the
base of the dryer unobstructed;
– Use the loading volumes specified in
the programme overview;
– Ensure you have good ventilation in the
installation room;
– Clean the micro-fine filter and fine
strainer after each drying cycle;
– Spin the laundry well before drying.
Energy consumption depends on
spinning speed set in washing
machine. Higher spinning speed lower energy consumption.

Drying tips
Important! Before drying rack installation
check the dryer drum. It must be empty!
Sport shoes cannot be dry without the
drying rack - drum damage.
• for the best drying result spread the
woollens out loosely on the drying rack
and roll it up
• do not squash and fold the woollens
Installation and use
Open the loading door.
Insert the rack carefully resting its two
support brackets on the front of plastic
• open support and put sport shoes on it

Maintenance and cleaning
Cleaning fluff filter
The filters collect all the fluff which
accumulates during drying. To ensure that
the dryer works perfectly, the fluff filters
(micro-fine filter and fine strainer) must be
cleaned after every drying cycle.
The warning lamp Filter lights to remind you
of this operation at the end of each cycle.
Caution! Never operate the dryer
without fluff filters or with damaged
or blocked fluff filters.
Open loading door
Use a damp hand to clean the microfine filter, which is built into the lower
part of the loading aperture.
After a period of time, a gleam due to
detergent residue on laundry forms on
the filters. When this occurs, clean the
filters with warm water using a brush.
Remove the filter from the door pulling
it out. (It can be positioned with the
locating spur facing to the left or to the

locks into the interlock.
Remove the fluff from fine filter. It is
best to use a damp hand for this
Clean the entire filter area
The filter area does not have to be
cleaned after every drying cycle, but
should be checked regularly and cleaned
of fluff if necessary.
To do this, grip the top of the large
mesh filter and pull it forwards until it
comes loose from the two brackets.
If the fine filter is not fitted, the large

If the water reservoir is full, an active
programme will break off automatically and
the warning lamp Full tank lights. In order to
continue the programme, the water
reservoir must first be emptied.
Remove fluff from the entire filter area.
It is best to use a vacuum cleaner for
this purpose.
The condensed water can be used as
distilled water, e.g. for steam ironing.
However it must first be filtered (e.g.
with a coffee filter) to remove any
residue and small pieces of fluff.
Warning! The condensed water is
not suitable for drinking or for
preparing foodstuffs.
Take out drawer containing water
reservoir completely 1 and pull up the
water reservoir's drainage pipe as far as
it will go 2.
Cleaning heat exchanger
If the warning lamp Condenser lights, the heat
exchanger fluff filters in the base of the
appliance must be cleaned, i.e. after each 3
drying cycles. Both filters are located in the
appliance base.
Water can collect in the filter housing
therefore it is normal for the heat
exchanger fluff filters to become wet.
Pour the condensed water out into a
basin or similar receptacle.
Slide the outlet connections in and refit
the water reservoir.
If the programme has been interrupted
as a result of the water reservoir being
full: Press the Start/Pause button to
continue the drying cycle.
• Never operate the dryer without the fluff
• Clogged filters cause higher energy
consumption (drying cycle elongation) and
dryer damage.
• A dirty heat pump can only be cleaned up
by means of a costly process.
The water reservoir has a volume of
approx. 4 litres.
Open door in plinth: To do this, press
the release button on the right and
open the door in the plinth to the left.
Pull the filter housing out of the base by
the handle.
To clean the fluff filter: Remove filter
from filter housing. To do this, press the
pressure points on the sides and pull the
filter frame up and out of the housing.
Remove fluff from the fluff filter with a
damp hand.
Use a damp hand to remove the fluff
from the filter in the base . If necessary
pull out and clean the filter with warm
water using a wiper or brush. Clean the
inside of the door, the fluff filter
chamber and the rubber seals of fluff.
Insert the fluff filter to the base.
Insert the fluff filter into the filter
housing (it has to audibly lock) and slide
it inside the filter chamber. Close the
door in plinth. Note: If the fluff filter is
not inserted in the filter housing, the
filter housing cannot slide into the
appliance base.
Lime in the water or cleaning agents
may form a barely visible lining on the
inside of the drum. The degree to
which the laundry has been dried is
then no longer detected reliably. The
laundry is damper than expected
when removed from the dryer.
Use a standard domestic cleaner (e.g.
vinegar-based cleaner) to wipe down
the inside of the drum and drum ribs.
Clean operating screen
and housing
When necessary, approx. once every 6
months, remove the fluff from the heat
exchanger using the sponge supplied.
When doing this, please use rubber
Tip: The fluff can be removed more easily if
it is first dampened (e. g. with a laundry
dampener) or with help of vacuum cleaner.
Caution! Do not use furniture
cleaners or aggressive cleaning agents
to clean the machine.
Use a damp cloth to wipe down the
operating screen and housing.
Cleaning the drum
Caution! Do not use abrasives or
steel wool to clean the drum.

environment such as a unheated garage or
outbuilding. The combination of high
humidity and low ambient temperatures
could affect the performance or the
appliance and therefore invalidate your
• The hot air emitted by the tumble dryer
can reach temperatures of up to 60°C.
The appliance must therefore not be
installed on floors which are not resistant
to high temperatures.
• When operating the tumble dryer, the
room temperature must not be lower

that of the appliance in such a way that a
full opening of the dryer is restricted.
Appliance positioning
• It is recommended that, for your
convenience, the machine is positioned
close to your washing machine.
• The tumble dryer must be installed in a
clean place, where dirt does not build up.
• Air must be able to circulate freely all
round the appliance. Do not obstruct the
front ventilation grille or the air intake
grilles at the back of the machine.
• To keep vibration and noise to a
minimum when the dryer is in use, it
should be placed on a firm, level surface.
• Once in its permanent operating position,
check that the dryer is absolutely level
with the aid of a spirit level. If it is not,
raise or lower the feet until it is.
• The feet must never be removed. Do not
restrict the floor clearance through
deeppile carpets, strips of wood or
similar. This might cause heat built-up
which would interfere with the operation
of the appliance.

• Green and Yellow - Earth
• Blue - Neutral
• Brown - Live
Warning! If the appliance was not
transported in an upright position,
leave it to stand for 12 hours before
connecting it to the electricity supply
and using it for the first time, so that
the oil can flow back to the
compressor. Otherwise the
compressor could be damaged.
